further and discussing it with staff on the mtc, i am encouraged they want to make the clipper card privacy policy as strong as possible. the clipper card privacy policy gives the mtc the right to maintain all personal information indefinitely for active clipper accounts and for up to 7 years after accounts are closed or terminated. i am encouraged the mtc is taking steps to address these issues on their own. i hope this will assure the public the mtc is taking steps to protect their privacy. it is more stringent than cell phone plans which allow cell phone companies to sell their information, which is not the case. most of us are carrying around smart phones which are far more effective at tracking our every move than clipper cards. a recently designed smart phone application allows the phone to scan the clipper card and transmit information. it can be used without the clipper card's user's knowledge or permission. people can protect themselves from this by storing their clipper cards in a bag or somewhere, where it would be difficult for someone else to place a smart phone w

that it wasn't just muni funding the pilot, but that in fact the region could support it. we went to the mtc and there were actually two votes taken. because it allocated money from a specific source. and then at the request of one of the individuals who actually voted against the funding of the pilot, there was a new funding source that was found by the mtc staff. that's what's before you today. the resolution that the mta board of directors passed approving a free muni for low income youth did not specify what funding source the money came from. it left that question open. but in terms of the funding that we're talking about, we have to make clear that the mtc provided in the approval for the use for this very type of pilot, that in fact it was found the funding at the request of someone in fact commissioner tiny of marin, so that this kind of a pilot that we're talking about could be funded with this money. so the idea that was put out there, that somehow this is not what this funding was intended for, respectfully is not happened at the mtc. but the main point that i want to make is this

the funding we have from the mtc? or are we really evaluating this anew to see whether this is new money and whether this is a good use of it balanced in the program? >> i don't believe the resolution binds you because this board can adopt a different resolution that does something different. this use of funds is fully consistent with the words of that resolution. and i believe is consistent with the spirit, even though the funding source is slightly different. what you're approving here today is not the youth pilot program per se. it's really our expenditure program for this particular grant, that the mtc is requiring have the agency board approval for regardless of how we were going to use these funds. >> so, are we going to approve how we use these funds at a later point? >> no, this is where you're approving how to use these funds. and it's the specific allocation of the majority for the light rail vehicle rehab and the smaller portion for the youth paths. we will bring next year a similar accept and spend resolution for your consideration that will have a similar split of funding fo

and can get there. these dollars, you're right, mtc said could be used for this program but mtc also said it could be used for anything. and when i make the budget choice, i want to prioritize safe buses. i want to prioritize buses that are going to operate. and to muni, i said this in the hearing, not surprisingly director reiskin is not here today. this is a $1.6 million project. can anybody identify for me the funding that's going to help fund it for the remaining seven months? director reiskin couldn't. it was unidentified. i mean respectfully, supervisor campos, i've heard you beat the crap out of departments for4n( ñ putting forward programs with unallocated dollars. this is an unallocated project, $1.6 million is only for the first five months. he's hoping that we get money in 2013-14. the inconsistency here is mind-boggling. i understand this is your passion. i understand you want to deliver it. but we were told over and over again no moneys that could be used in our general operating budget would fund this program. that is exactly the opposite of what is happening here. the doll

francisco. with the mtc, the san francisco county transportation authority, the mta, together with the board of supervisors and especially this body, if we focus on our youth and hug them as much as we can to meet their transportation needs. * help them and one of the ways we can do that is by having a lively discussion as to how our monies are spent and have a broader view. we seem to be more focused on the operations and the machines rather than the living and the human beings who are [speaker not understood]. thank you very much. >> thank you. is there any other member of the public who would like to speak on this item? seeing none, public comment is closed. madam clerk, if you can please doll item number 4? >> executive director's report, this is an information item. >> now we will curran it over to our executive director. mr. moskovich, i want to thank you and your staff as we near the end of the calendar year for all the work that has been done this calendar year. >> thank you, mr. chairman. my report was a couple of additional handouts as well. i'm only going to focus on five of the

the work, to the ta staff, to the mtc, thank you for all that you're doing. now i had in my talking points a reference that we know you need the central subway if you get on the 30 stockton and apparently everyone else had that in the talking points. through the denser parts of san francisco, as someone who doesn't have a car i have and millions of us have wasted countless hours trying to get through our downtown corridor but i want to take a moment to thank the most important folks who are not here with us and that is the people of san francisco. for years before i joined the board of supervisors i served on with many volunteers the community advisory group to the central subway. with countless volunteers from the bay view, from visitation valley, from mission bay, south of market, union square, and of course thousands of residents and leaders from chinatown who went to countless public meetings provided tens of thousands of signatures, and stood for years to work extremely hard for world class transportation into the heart of our city, but we know we are building the central subway no

specific way that does that is mtc requested that 70% of all obag funds will be spent in the project development area. eligible programs pretty wide. including transportation for committees, local streets and road, paving projects, bicycle and pedestrian projects. a formula took into consideration, population, future housing project, gave san francisco $38 million that extends from '13 to '15 and '16. we have about $35 million of that amount for projects. that's the amount we're discussing here today. >> just real quick question on the scope of the program, this is 2013 to 205 and '16 fiscal years do we see another round of obag funding after that? >> correct. there should be future rounds. our federal funds flowed to the region on an annual basis. this is their four year program for doing the fund. next year for the next round can be a similar obag program. >> of about $35 million? >> if the formulas hold. those are all under discussion. schedule over view, on september 25th, we brought a schedule funding framework to the board for adoption. in your enclosure those documents are pag

that two of us, not just in this capacity, but at the mtc, i think that did not get to really see the broad, regional work that happens around so many different transits, and transportation projects and disagreement and agreements and it is really a... it is a critical and very tough arena in many ways. and one thing that i and i said this when chair campos and i went to speak to the ta staff when you announced your retirement. that even though, we all of course, have agreements and disagreements and sometimes, sometimes even intense disagreements that i think that it is universally people, universally acknowledge your incredible depths of knowledge and creative thinking around so many transit issues. >> i know that a number of months ago when it looked like there was a potential hitch in terms of the design of the project and you were able to come up with a very elegant and creative solution that we were all able to get behind. i just want to wish you all the best and i know that we are going to be in touch and i am sure that i will be calling you with questions and i appreciate your cont

for the data acquisition. we're also looking to work potentially with mtc -- they are working on an effort to actual procure -- access data for the region and potential at no cost to local jurisdiction. we'll be following that effort as well. we're hoping to transition some of that cost saving into working more with effort we work to better uncorporate more multimodal measures and more multimodal data to provide more complete picture of our transportation performance. we'll looking to use those cost saving as a way to get into the multimodal aspects and look at some new data sources. with that, this contract is $430,000. it's for this round of the 2013cmt. that's an 18 month period. it also has options for two additional two year periods, which will be the 2015 and 2017 monitoring effort. we are recommending that this contract be awarded to -- after doing procurement process involving group proposal, we received three proposals and conducted interviews with all three of the qualified firms and received some quite strong proposals. those are some of the reasons we ended up going recommended

and keeping their privacy. we are pleased to hear that mtc is taking action that clipper action, although not as precise as information from a cell phone, can reveal a lot about a individual. it can reveal if you got on or off bart near a hospital, near a clinic, all sorts of things that may imply things about your personal life and particularly over a long period of time there is an extensive amount of information collected about a person. are they going to church on a regular basis. are they going to baseball games when they are supposed to be at work? i think it is important to recognize that these records should be respected, should be treated as private information and as the commission said, should be looked at and retained only as long as necessary for operational purposes, not because it's cheap to retain data but because you need them for fraud. i'd like to demonstrate to the committee, this is an application for an android app >> what is it called again? fare bot it requires a new android phone that has an (inaudible) all you need to do with the app, attach it to a card, the

of the primary prioritization for mtc was supported by development areas. that is the guiding principle as far as geography. >> and the pdas or the priority development areas are mostly in the eastern neighborhoods, is that right? >> primarily. we can certainly provide you with a map, but yes, it is primarily in the eastern side of the city. but not only, not exclusively, though. >> and i had a question about the safe routes to schools. i know that there are two on the list. i'm wondering does dph and dpw and even the school district look at the city-wide needs and prioritize it or does it just come up -- well, why would ert [speaker not understood] be on the list and not -- betsy car michael and schools in the bayview, for example? but i'm just wondering. >> right. there are actually three safe routes to school applications, et cetera, on this list. they do stem from a combination of identification efforts. one is a city-wide identification of project needs and there are also walking audits that are performed by the department of public health and also the safe routes to school members to ide
